Am I at risk?

Coronary artery disease (the most common form of heart disease) is the leading cause of death for both women and men in the United States. It is estimated that coronary artery disease claims over 500,000 lives each year – more than all forms of cancer combined! But heart disease doesn’t just result in death – it can damage your heart and reduce your quality of life. That's why it is so important to know the risk factors and early warning signs of heart disease. The key to combating heart disease is PREVENTION. 

Consider making an appointment if you have any of the following:

  • History of heart attack, stents or coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Coronary artery plaque or calcification found on an imaging test, such as a CT scan
  • Family history of heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Tobacco use
